Alaea Sea Salt from Starwest Botanicals.
Alaea is the traditional Hawaiian table salt used to season and preserve foods. Alaea is non-processed, and is rich in trace minerals, all found in the sea water. A small amount of the natural mineral "Alae" (volcanic baked red clay) enriches the sale with iron-oxide, and seals the moisture and adds flavor, also giving the salt its distinctively attractive red color. The Hawaiian clay gives the sale a subtle, earthy flavor, with a slightly mellower taste than regular sea salt. Alaea is perfect for making tasty spice blends and rubs for meat, and particularly brings out the flavor when roasting or grilling meat. It's perfect for pork loin, Kalua Pig, steak and is also the traditional and authentic seasoning for the native Hawaiian dishes Hawaiian Jerky and Poke.
